This man is amazing, fantastic, marvelous, grand—pick your superlative, I promise it’ll work. Last night’s show was a little sub-par, but he brought his a-game tonight. I paid a shitload of money for the concert ticket & plane ride & it was worth every penny. Holy crap, he can mesmerize a room like nobody else. I think every person in the building, straight men included, would have slept with him had he asked because he is just that magnetic.
I am definitely tired enough to get way too cheesy to even be typing this, but I idolize him & I want to do him & I want him to adopt me & I want to get drunk with him & I want to watch him do his thing up on stage every night because when he gets in the zone, I’ve never seen anyone that can out-perform him. I don’t even like talking to people about him because looking up his studio songs doesn’t do him the slightest bit of justice—it’s like seeing a beautiful painting through a smudged piece of glass. That’s not how he’s meant to be heard, & how he is meant to be heard is FLAWLESS.
If I ever found anything that I was half as good at as he is at being up on stage, I think I’d be perfectly satisfied with my accomplishments in life. He is in his element up there & it shows.
thanks, man. this was my 11th show. here’s to 111 more.

dear Chicago, you stole my a little bit of my heart. if I could have it back, preferably before I have to go back home to podunk little Georgia in a few days, that’d be swell. thanks.
HERE IS SOME SNOW! I apologize that this is the worst picture ever, but I was not wearing a jacket & it was cold & I am tired.
This is only the second time I have seen snow! I threw some at a bush. I will play some more tomorrow when I am not super-exhausted & have not been on six different forms of transportation in one day.
THE MOOD IS RIGHT
JON SNOWRAT’S UP
WE’RE HERE TONIGHT
AND THAT’S ENOUGH
SIIIIIMPLY HAVING A WONDERFUL CHRISTMASTIME!
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Carter nipping at your nose!
(although it’s been said, many times, many ways, merry Christmas! because it is Christmas now in my time zone so yay.)
Come, they told Bentley, rum ba bum bum! A newborn king to see, rum ba bum bum!
Oh star of wonder, star of night, star with royal beauty bright, westward leading, still proceeding, guide Ollie & Gyrf & Pax to thy perfect light!
